Gifts to give your guests don’t come much tastier than this! We’ve scoured the web and our real-life wedding galleries to bring you 9 seriously scrumptious edible wedding favours guaranteed to get your guests nibbling!



Want your wedding favours to be pretty and practical? Try these cute cookies that double up as place cards from Nila Holden. “The bride sends me her guest list and I individually hand stamp each guest’s name onto a cookie,” says Nila. “And everyone loves to see their name on a cookie!” Who wouldn’t?!

Yes, you read that right… It’s a cake, in a jar! Incredibly yummy – and a real talking point to boot – this new favour idea can be customised to your wedding colours. At £3.45 each they’re not a budget choice but man, they’ll make a statement on your tables! Get yours from Cake in a Jar – as you’d expect!


Are you having old-fashioned fair wedding theme? These personalised candy canes and lollipops from Sophia Victoria Joy Etc, from £1.45 each at, will really get your guests in the carnival mood. Also perfect for red or romantic receptions – and the cute little tags make the perfect finishing touch.


Classic English country garden theme? Vintage crockery? There’s only one possible favour for you – these cute ‘You are just my cup of tea’ fairtrade teabags, £1.10 from The Wedding of my Dreams. They come in a super rustic brown envelope wrapped with black and white baker’s twine. Also works beautifully at rustic weddings with the addition of a little hessian napkin ring!

Planning an Easter or spring wedding theme? Look no further for your favours than these cute, pastel-coloured mini eggs! They look even more authentic displayed in a little nest, as shown above at this real wedding. A simple DIY project that will make a big impact.


Staying with the Easter theme, classic Cadbury’s cream eggs have been personalised here with little name flags and presented in traditional egg boxes to complete the rustic feel. Perfect for a country wedding candy buffet.

Looking for a DIY project for your big day? Jam, jelly or chutney is easy to make and can be enjoyed by your guests long after the big day is over. Choose some rustic-looking fabric to cover the top and you’ll be receiving compliments for weeks!

There’s nothing better on a hot summer’s day than a glass – or bottle – of traditional cloudy lemonade. This is a savvy favour for a high-summer, vintage style wedding. You could even hand them out yourselves so you get to speak to everyone on the day.


We all remember a finger of fudge from our childhood, so why not add some nostalgia to your wedding favours with these cute Scottish fudge hearts from Phil Rao on Etsy? You can get four for £1, and they are made using a traditional family recipe. Package them as you like, but we love them displayed on a glass cake stand just like this.

  1. I would be disappointed, esp as they’ll be made by my good friend. I read a good article that said people are more likely to take them when they are small enough to go in handbag/pocket and have the person’s name on. So that’s what we’re doing!

  2. I had lucky sixpences as favours which said our names and wedding date on the packaging a lot of our guests loved them and small enough to go in purse, wallet, pocket etc but still some got left behind and it was mostly the bridal party :O – they were fab though and cost less than £1 each off eBay!! 😀 xxx

  3. It’s a shame when favours are left, but there are ways to make them more keepable: having guests’ names on makes them personal, when they’re handcrafted / homemade people realise you’ve gone to lots of effort… edible favours are more popular (not almonds lol!).
    If you’re making your own favours why not add a little printed label: “Lovingly made for you by the bride’s mum” etc… but do expect some to be left behind – it happens.
